ClassDojo knows how to Listen to Teachers in order to Succeed

ClassDojo is an education-based application that is now a standard part of the modern educational system. This app has been around since 2011 and is the number one EdTech app in America. This education app has become the number one application because the app’s founders (Liam Don and Sam Chaudhary) listened to teachers.

Teachers are the main people on the front lines of the education system. They are the grunt workers who are in the trenches with students every day. Their classrooms are learning areas for teaching students. They not only help students to gain knowledge, they also build them up as people.

Educators need resources and tools that will help them to be successful at their jobs. Students want to be at their best and ClassDojo helps them with this process. The app gives teachers many resources for contacting parents. This is an essential part of interacting with students. When a pupil’s mom and/or dad is involved in the education process, a teacher usually has an easier school year. Most students also like the involvement of their parents as well.

The main thing to remember is that ClassDojo listens to teachers and their needs. They made an application that provides them with practical and useful features. These features include mindfulness training for helping to keep students level-headed and focused. They also offer text messaging and video features that allow teachers to communicate with parents in real time. ClassDojo wants to ensure that teachers have tools they need to make their school year great.
